5 Ways to Implement the KonMari Method in Your Home

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I recently flew through “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up – The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing” by Marie Kondo. The KonMari method, as its known, is currently one of the most popular ways to de-clutter your home. I’m just now starting to try her methods…we’ll see how it goes!  I have already gotten rid of about 10 garbage bags full of stuff just this week.

Here are a few ways to begin implementing the KonMari method in your home!

1. Free Printable Checklist


The KonMari method might seem overwhelming at first, but Jessica at Jersha & Dup has created this organized and FREE printable checklist to make things easier! Plus, it’s color-coded for easy implementation!

2. Clothes


Abby at Just a Girl and Her Blog has one of the most detailed posts I’ve seen on how to organize and declutter your clothes. This can be such a huge task! But don’t worry, there are plenty of photos and instructions to help you through the process!

3. Beauty Products

Is your bathroom vanity overflowing with makeup, skin care products, and other random bath products? Can’t find toothpaste when you need it, even though you know you bought three tubes when it was on sale? This post from Alex at Life on a Canadian Island is a great aid in cleaning out your beauty products!

4. Books


Who better to help organize your books than a real librarian?! This post on My Love for Words gives some great tips for scaling down your home library and organizing your book collection into neat and tidy categories.

5. Toys


Are toys overrunning your home? Meghann at Practically Hippie tackled her kids’ toys, and even involved her 3-year-old daughter in the process (what a great way to make her feel included in the purging!). Her simple list of what to automatically get rid of helped her along the way. Check it out on her blog!

Just for fun, I thought I’d share some cute illustrations I came across from Juju Sprinkles demonstrating the KonMari method.
